Great deal for this TV and a 2017 model at that. This was the only 3D tv model made last year too. I bought one just before Christmas and it’s been great.

Top features:

- Cinema-quality picture with 4K Pro HDR

- Adjustable stand height makes watching TV as comfortable as you like

- Professionally-tuned display brings your content to life

- Smart TV gives you catch-up, 4K streaming and more

4K Pro HDR

Made for premium picture quality, the Panasonic TX-50EX750B 50" Smart 3D 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV delivers vivid, richly-detailed images that'll make you feel like you're at the movies.

From TV shows and Blu-ray discs to 4K streaming and gaming, you'll experience deeper blacks and brighter whites with Pro HDR technology on a screen offering four times the resolution of Full HD.

Adjustable stand height

Set your TV at four different heights so you can sit down and watch as comfortably as you want. Angle the TX50-EX750B to give yourself the best possible view from almost anywhere in the room.

It's a great way to avoid glare from a window, or make sure the person on the end of the couch can see.

Professionally-tuned display

Enjoy beautifully realistic colour, finely detailed textures and exceptional on-screen smoothness for sports, movies, documentaries or whatever you're watching. The TX 50EX 7504K TV uses a Studio Colour Hollywood Cinema eXperience 2 Processor (HCX2) to deliver home viewing that looks great as anything you'd see at a cinema or in a TV studio.

Its professionally tuned LED display gives you more accurate pictures than standard LED TVs – each LED can be lit or dimmed individually for atmospheric shadows and crisp highlights as the director intended.

Smart TV

Start watching shows, films and more - the TV features popular apps like built-in Netflix and Amazon. Enjoy 4K HDR content and Wuaki TV (subscriptions required), plus diverse free content from YouTube and YouTube 4K - Vimeo, and many others.

Catch up with favourite shows using BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, and Demand 5 – there's also past content from Dave, Really, Yesterday, and Drama, giving you a huge range of catch-up in one TV. Watch one program while recording another thanks to a twin tuner, letting you access Freeview and Freesat content. All you need to record is a USB stick or external hard drive (sold separately).

Catch-up TV is easier with Freeview Play. Search individual catch-up TV apps and see programmes you've missed over the past seven days. Panasonic's Quick Look Guide shows what's on, shows you've missed and recommended shows at a glance.

Is 50" big enough for 4k?

Is 50" big enough for 4k?



Yes. The size of the screen isn’t the issue, it’ll be your viewing distance if it isn’t big enough.

This oddly seems to come up a lot since we moved over to HD but people seem to forget that there are PC monitors out there with 4K that are much smaller than this. Hell, even the 5K iMacs are only 27”.

I’m about 8-9 feet away from my screen and the difference is obvious on 4K content.

What about true HD, it's almost impossible to get a set which isn't 4K. All of my stuff is in HD. I was told that HD looks bad when upscaled to a 4K TV, is this true?

Can anyone tell me if this one (Panasonic TX58DX802B), is a good alternative? I know this is an older model, but ideally wanted 55" or over. Our local Panasonic dealer has it for £799 with 5 year warranty. Tia.

It’s not true. 1080p looks great upscaled. It fits perfectly into the 4K resolution so it doesn’t look horrible. Certainly nothing like the jump from standard definition to HD did.

Depends entirely on the source you’re feeding it though. Some channels on Freeview/Sky have low bitrates so they will still look bad but they do still on a 1080p set as well. A good 1080p bluray can look fantastic on a 4K set though.

I only began moving to 4K sources this past year and the picture quality was noticebly better on my 4K set when using 1080p sources. Prior to owning this TV, I had a 4K non HDR model and I was still able to tell the difference.

If you go plugging a dvd player or Nintendo Wii, PS2 etc into this, then it isn’t going to look great. Anything 720p and up though, and it looks perfectly fine. I still use my NowTV box on this (and my previous tv) and have no issues with quality too.

Basically, don’t worry. All your HD sources will look great still. Better in some cases like a good blu ray

It’s fine. Reviewed very well back in 2016 and Panasonic carried it over (along with the DX902B) into 2017. This model (EX750B) fits inbetween the 802B and the 902B. The 802B and 902B were phased out throughout 2017 and this (EX750B) became the flagship LED/LCD TV.

There is quite the price difference between this model at 58” and the 802B. Personally, if I needed the bigger screen size, I’d go for the 802B. Alternatively, as this is a true 10 bit panel and carries the latest HCX2 processors, you could wait a little longer for the 58” model to reduce in price.

If the 10bit panel and lack of HCX2 processor isn’t something you’re concerned with though, and want to buy a TV now, you absolutely can’t go wrong with the 802B.

I went from a GT30 to the AX630b. The black levels and colours couldn’t quite match up on that. Now that I bought this, I have my deep black levels back and the colours look great, just like they did on my trusty old plasma. I’d say it’s worth it. I’ve read that others have made the jump from plasma to this and been happy too

Maybe worth having a walk into your local Currys/Richer Sounds/John Lewis etc and seeing if they have the model on display so you can have a look yourself.

It’s absolutely not a step down. This has the processor that is found in their OLEDs and that alone removes any white blooming/haloing found on the DX802 and 902. This is also a true 10 bit panel unlike the 802B.

This is also the only newer model that carries the Super Bright Panel Plus tech for HDR in the range. It also has a newer LCD shutter system to prevent white clouds of light being visible in dark scenes. (Works very well too.)

Got this TV from Richer Sounds for £789 just before Xmas (pricematch with Hughes). It's a great TV, however I recommend if you buy it, that you go over to AVFORUMS and use forum member Blackwiggle's settings to get the best picture.

Thanks for the in depth reply. Ideal. Maybe I can wait a little longer for the ex range to come down. I've only been waiting 11+ years to replace my Panasonic 720p plasma. Lol!

I bought a Pioneer 428 last year, my first flat panel lol. I always wanted one of these when they were a current model but so expensive compared to what was available with other manufacturers so I just stuck with my trusty Panny Quintrix CRT. Last year my panny started making noises through the speakers which made me look for a more modern tv. I came across the Pioneer on ebay for a steal (£56) & I have to say I love it even tho' it's only 720p.

My question is, is this LCD technology better?

£56 for a Kuro? Nice.

Plasma was always better back then but LCD tech has moved forward a lot. I honestly don’t feel that this is worse than my GT30 back in 2014. It ticked all the boxes for me and 3D was important enough that I didn’t want to lose it. (The 3D OLED from last year was out of my price range)

I wanted HDR though as well which my previous model was lacking. I can’t say I am disappointed in the slightest and even now, I still turn the tv on and am amazed by the picture quality. (I’ve had it since November)

If you can, get yourself down to your local tv dealer and have a look at it in person. If you are only watching freeview/virgin/sky though, I wouldn’t bother swapping from your Kuro unless you do want to watch 4K content orwant your blu rays to look the best they can be.

No worries. It has caused confusion to be fair by Panasonic bring back the older models. This is below the 902B (due to that having a higher nits brightness and a full array backlighting system) but definitely shouldn’t be placed below 802B. It has too many advancements to be below that one.

Ha ha ha. I so wish I could watch Blu rays on the TV. This is resigned to PC only. I spent a lot of money on my Arcam DVD player & getting a real good BR player I suspect is not cheap (remember I bought that Kuro).

Yes, the Kuro really was £56. Be surprised at how cheap they have now become . Had my eyes on a Panasonic TX-P42VT20B for £199 but after I'd won the auction they emailed me to say they couldn't get it working (been sitting unused on the floor for a few weeks) so Kuro it was . Shame for the owners tho'.

At the mo I just have Freeview with just 5 HD channels - not good! Although I can access a lot of catch up tv via Now TV

If you was after a blu ray player, at this point in time, I’d just go for a 4K player. richersounds.com/tv-…tml They’ve reduced quicker than standard bluray did surprisingly.

For nearly half the price though, you could just get one of these. richersounds.com/tv-…tml They’re really decent players. That one is highly rated too.

I sold my old TV on eBay and it got broken during transport. (Screen cracked) that was gutting so I know how the owners of the VT20 felt.

Unfortunately most upscalers don't use 4:1 ratio for upscaling. This means you often find it can look fuzzy, even though it should at least look as good as 1080P.

Hughes have it for £849 with the code jan50 that brings it down to £799. If you call Richer sounds though, they will pricematch Hughes (they did with mine before christmas) and beat it by £10 so that brings it down to £789. You’ll get a 6 year warranty at Richer sounds too. (You have to redeem the 5 year warranty with Panasonic themselves and the 6th year is provided by Richer Sounds themselves.)

Not quite £779 but not too bad of an increase once you get a price match.

Depends on the scaling - in theory, as you mentioned it should do perfect scaling. But I've experience poor scaling - I bought a 4K monitor with the intention of running games at 1080p, and they looked worse than a proper 1080p monitor
